I got this, out of the box got it shooting at least 13 in the cold. accurate barrel. Dont run it at 200 psi, you'll have re-cocking issues. run it at 250, and after you've adjusted the trigger and are doing over 15bps you'll understand why.2 expansion chambers and they recommend you run it on compressed air? wtf is that? Second delve into this gun the gauge read 300 then bent past zero, probably a spike with their reg(was running on compressed air). I do like that it comes with a venting on off asa with reg all in one tiny package, but a secondary reg allowed would overcome the spike, maybe a LP or adjustable tank but who wants to spend that money? its a few days after i bought it will buy another gauge but if it happens again ill send it in. The asa is a problem if you want to add a drop, because you have to take the trigger frame and board apary because the screws are facing the inside, not the out.
Its a decent marker. If you have the money go for a 2k2 Timmy or something better, but this gun is so far the best spyder ive shot ever. (max ROF accuracy, nice bolt chargeable 9.6v thats nice) dont get the vs3, its not allowed in tourneys (2 switches) and there awkward to walk anyways. Worth the money? yes, i give it an 8 because of the gauge, and feed neck, whitch doesnt like my halo, will update
8 out of 10

There are no expansion chambers on this gun. The fornt forgrip is an air volumizer(sp?). It allows for faster recharge rates so when you shoot at high rates of fire to have less shot down. And the part under the barrel is also there for the same reason i think. But neither of them are expension chambers.
Yes, the vs2 should not use co2 because it is possible to damage the marker because of expanding co2 raising the pressure past the regulated 200-250psi.
